Join Us Friday October 29 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

Santa Anita Park is back with our popular Charity 1/ST Handicapping Challenge!

This invitation-only contest will begin with 16 participants (comprised of trainers, owners, handicappers, media personalities and other members of the horse racing community) split into two teams that will compete head-to-head in an elimination-style tournament comprising of 4 total rounds and 14 live racing days, for the crown of Charity Champion. At the end of the contest, Santa Anita Park will donate at least $1,000 to the Winner’s Foundation and that amount will increase every time one of our participants turns their daily bankroll to over $1,000.

Details:

Two players will participate each day in a handicapping seminar that will be hosted by Jeff “Chappy” Chapman and George Ortuzar.

When: Every Tournament Day at 10:30 AM PST (full calendar for Schedule)

Where: Live online on our Santa Anita Park Live Stream Page, YouTube, and Twitter.

What: In these half-hour long seminars, the players (8 players will be representing Team Chappy and 8 players will be representing Team George O) will discuss their selections for the contest.
